For an amazing price of PHP5,999, Redmi 2 features a 4.7-inch HD display. It runs on a quad-core 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor for faster and more powerful performance.

The 8-megapixel rear camera on Redmi 2 features a 28-mm wide angle lens that is great for capturing photos, while the 2-megapixel front camera supports 720p video recording.
At the same time, all Mi products will continue being available online on Lazada Philippines. The suggested retail prices of Mi products at the retail stores will be the same as the online prices. This allows Mi fans to pick the most convenient way of purchasing their desired products.

In addition to our main online sales channel, we're excited to offer offline sales as an option.
